Establishing Green Fools in 1991, visual artists Dean Bareham and Xstine Cook shared a desire to create a company that focused on the kind of work they had studied in the Dell Arte School of Physical Theatre in Blue Lake, California. The world of stilt walking, physical and street theatre, visual arts and elaborate costuming, and mask and puppetry offered a vision of touring internationally as well as fostering a creative community at home. From their beginning, they’ve experimented with performance work and pushed boundaries as they toured music, street, and circus festivals around the world. “The Frying Fool Show” now renamed “Gustavo the Impossiblist” is their longest standing show, is in constant demand, has a wide following, has been performed multiple times a year, and has been presented around the globe. Dean presents Gustavo and teaches circus skills in our 2020 Play@Home Zone.
